Compaq CQ61 Failing to boot with error lights flashing

Compaq Presario CQ61-312SA

Windows 7 32 bit

 

When power is swtiched on, the notebook will fail to start, leaving only a blank screen and 2 lights flashing twice

 

I have check the error codes and it indicates that the BIOS is corrupt

 

Is there a way for me to reflash the bios using a bootable pen drive or ms-dos command ?

Or is this going to be a send the machine to HP/Compaq?

 

The notebook's warranty has also expired :smileysad:

I'm having the same issue.  Did you ever find out what happened?  Did you get it fixed?
